My New Tilda!

Good morning, my sweet friends!  I have decided that I am going back to the gym.  No... really... I am!  Now why are you laughing?  I know that I've said that too often in the past with no action... but honestly, I'm gonna do it this time -hee hee!  I have a very good friend who will keep me accountable.  She is the reason why I started going to the gym in the first place.  And here is my reason why I stopped:  surgery (twice).  But now that I've had sufficient time to recover, I'm good to go --- so, here I go!!!  Pray that I won't overdo it or pull or push something that shouldn't be pulled or pushed...

Today I have a sweet and very simple card to show ya.  I used one of my new Tilda stamps!  This is my very first Magnolia post (I know... can you believe it?).  It's time for me to move into the 21st Century where Tilda is alive and well - lol!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:

Roses on Paper - coloring with fav medium - can you guess???
Stamp Something - new somethings
Crazy 4 Challenges - polka dots
Creative Card Crew - anything goes
La-La Land - charms
Penny's - monochromatic
My Time to Craft - anything goes

Colored Tilda with my fav copics!
Large deckled rectangle nestie
Polka dot Quickutz EF
Polka dot border CBEF
Pink Spica pen and Stardust Stickles
MS branch punch from Olga's candy
Ribbon, flower, pearls, charm from stash
I FINALLY learned how to use my Bow Easy (from Suzanne's candy).
 It really IS very easy... I was just too intimidated to take the time to read the instructions!
(Thank you, Olga and Suzanne!!!)

Bling - Bling - Bling

Yep, there's the charm : )

Hey, this should be entered into a CAS challenge (clean and simple).  I'll have to see if I can find one.  Do you know of a challenge this would qualify for?

Tomorrow I'll have more "news" for ya.  There's always something exciting happening!
Don't forget about my "surprise" candy Here.  You have until Jan. 15...

See ya tomorrow, my friends.

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your souls ~

Really cute card... fantastic colouring (as always).

Now a word from your sis - don't go over-doing it at the gym - rather have a load of laughs (it's meant to be good exercise for the belly region)! Huggles, Wendy xx

such a cute little gal she is! love all the pinks you used too! i just love the way you use your copics to color. wanna know a secret? i have never tried them...ever! pretty bad huh? they kinda scare me too though as i haven't the first clue how to use them. maybe that ought to be one of my new year's resolutions! hugs!

Wow...what a Gorgeous card!!..I love the colors, details and your Fabulous coloring!..Happy New Year!!...Hugs, Ila

Ila said...

Hi Lori...I blend my prismas with oms and a paper stump...I only use the copics under the prismas as a seems to make the prismas blend easier on top. Just a word of caution...Never use copics over the wax in the prismas will ruin copic tips...Thanks for visiting!! ...and your lovely comment...Hugs, Ila
